POC products - Review POC products - Review
This is a review and report of the following POC products that I've used for last season; Spine VPD Tee, Hip VPD Shorts, Bone VPD Leg, Bone Arm, Joint Ankle, Cortex Flow, Index DH and Iris DH goggles.

I started riding downhill last summer and I ended up buying a full set of POC armor and an Orange 224 evolution DH-bike. Since then I've been riding any time that I've had free time. Basically I have tested all the equipment I bought by crashing with them on, so I thought it would be good to write a review. I've taken pictures of each product after one season and I've also included pictures of my injuries that I've had while wearing this armor. I've also put some of my ideas on how to develop the products further. By the way I'm from Finland so excuse my grammatical errors.

2010 Fox Shox - 32 Talas RLC and Float RP23 - Reviewed 2010 Fox Shox - 32 Talas RLC and Float RP23 - Reviewed
Fox Racing Shox is a big name when it comes to any form of suspension damping. Fox has recently re-done their drop out system, their FIT Damper, and their overall fork design to not only lighten up the complete system, but make it stiffer, and more functional than before. As well we will look at the new addition of the Boost Valve technology to the Float RP23 shock series.

Ibis Bikes Ibis Bikes
It has become no secret that I fell in bike love with the Ibis Mojo this past season and for good reason. No other bike in recent years has made me want to get out and ride more than that shiny carbon two wheeler that I spent the better portion of my season on. When we find bikes like this we try not to get too caught up in them as we know that we'll have to move on to new pastures sooner or later - that's what we do as testers, writers and lovers of this sport. Once it was my turn to move on, I found out about the Mojo HD - since that time I've been looking forward to riding one and seeing if it would live up to my Mojo experience.

Inside we're gonna tell you a lot more about all the bikes that Ibis offers the mountain bike crowd,

Loeka Tech Jacket & Pants Review Loeka Tech Jacket & Pants Review
As a female rider it is tough to find gear for all applications of riding and I am constantly on the look out for new riding specific pieces. Living in the North Eastern part of the US, I had only heard of Loeka Clothing through word of mouth, but never actually seen any pieces in person. Loeka is a ladies only clothing company that is producing technical clothing for us girls that
want our own gear that is made for us.

For the last couple of months I have had the pleasure of testing some fine women's mountain bike clothing made by Loeka. Owners Rory Harmse and Coreena Fletcher set me up with a pair of brown Tech Pants and a wicked-funky plaid Tech Jacket.

See how it all stood up inside,

Custom Specialized S-Works Enduro Carbon - Preview Custom Specialized S-Works Enduro Carbon - Preview
There's something about putting together a unique custom build that gets the blood flowing, cold and rainy weather be damned! I've spent the last few dark evenings assembling a machine that has got me excited: our custom All-Mountain Monster, built around Specialized's carbon Enduro S-Works frame. With geometry that aggressive riders should love, 6" of travel, and a target weight of under 30 lbs - including the Truvativ Hammerschmidt and remote adjustable height seatpost - is this the one bike to rule them all? Have a look at our preview and weigh in on the S-Works inside and we're looking forward to your opinions after reading the article.

Six Six One had their DROID deflector on display in Vegas. The Droid is hard shell armor with neck support built into it (think Leatt brace). This patent pending piece of armor looks interesting and they are expecting to see many athletes on it in 2010.
